Cold Blood by Richard Kerridge
To our delight Cold Blood: Adventures with Reptiles and Amphibians – course tutor Richard Kerridge’s nature writing memoir – will be Book of the Week on Radio 4, July 26th to August 2nd.
On the MA, we had earlier studied ‘Our Adder’, a shorter piece of writing that appears in the book, and had a stimulating discussion about its complex and fascinating reflection on human – animal relations. You can link to this piece, published by Granta, here.
Richard has been garnering excellent reviews, such as this by Patrick Barkham in the Guardian. He talked to Laura Rawlings on Radio Bristol and also appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Midweek: you can listen to this here (listen from around 33 minutes in).
